We live in the western part of Minneapolis MN and have 6 - 8 nesting pair of Orioles that summer here feeding on grape jelly, sugar water and mealworms. In the last week we have only seen 1 or 2 young - this year's hatch at the feeders. Is it possible that they are already migrating south? Typically they leave near the end of August but maybe with this horrible heat and humidity they decided to leave early? However 2 of this years Chickadee hatch are enjoying not only the mealworms but the grape jelly and sugar water - funny!
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
